The text of the report states:

CAPP has concluded reluctantly that it cannot recommend another position in Religious Studies in the foreseeable future. It recommends, therefore, that Religious Studies consider alternatives to its current major, either with a program on the Canadian Studies model or integrated into an interdisciplinary program such as Women's Studies or the proposed new Cultural Studies program. Either of these models would fit with the current and anticipated curriculum proposals from the department. While student interest in current courses is high, CAPP considers that these courses could continue to be offered, and the areas of religion and culture and religion and women strengthened by integration with other disciplines and fields. Once again, this recommendation is not a reflection of the value CAPP puts on the discipline nor of the quality of the program, but is taken in the context of existing and anticipated resources across the entire University.

The Framework of the Metro Halifax Universities' Business Plan, for presentation to the Honourable John MacEachern, Minister of Education, 19 July 1995, 3–4. The deans' report estimated that the faculties of arts of the metropolitan universities would lose fifty academic positions among faculty who were fifty or older in 1995. The deans speculated that “the non-replacement of 50 positions would create problems for a range of academic departments and programs. The most severe effects would likely be experienced in the following areas: Dalhousie/Kings: Comparative Religion, Classics; Mount Saint Vincent: Religious Studies, Speech and Drama, Philosophy, Politics, Economics; Saint Mary's: Religious Studies, Classics, German, Geography.” The deans then went further and developed categories that identified the programs at greatest risk. Under Category A they stated: “Programs which might have to close or experience redeployment of remaining faculty: Comparative Religion/Religious Studies.” In the Saint Mary's University student newspaper following the release of the business plan, the report confidently asserted that the Department of Religious Studies at Saint Mary's would close ev en though there was only one retirement in the period under review at Saint Mary's. This impression was corrected by the Dean of Arts in a letter to a later edition of the paper.
